CHAP. II. In which this Author's True and on∣ly Notion of Idolatry is Con∣sider'd, and the Method laid down for a more particular Examina∣tion of it.
CHAP. III. Of the Idolatry of the Ancient Heathens; especially, of the Chaldeans, Egyptians, and Persians; and that it did not consist in their Worshipping the Sun, Moon and Stars, or any other Visible and Corpo∣real Deity, as the Supreme God; so as to exclude all Sense and Apprehension of a Spiritual and Invisible Godhead.
CHAP. IV. Of the Notion of Idolatry under the Law; and that it did not Consist in the giving the worship of the Supreme God to some Created, Corporeal or Visible Deity as supposing it to be the Supreme God.
CHAP. V. The objections against the Notion of Idolatry laid down in the foregoing Chapter con∣sider'd, and refuted.
